Okaloosa Gas continued their great support to Children in Crisis by presenting a huge gas grill to the children living at the CIC Children’s Neighborhood. The grill helped feed the volunteer workers of the recent United Way of Okaloosa Walton Day of Caring.
Then Jenni Brunson, marketing director for Okaloosa Gas, called CIC and asked if the children needed a grill.
“We have been blessed with great support from the community to build and sustain operations of the Children’s Neighborhood,” says CIC president and CEO Ken Hair. “Support from Okaloosa Gas is a tremendous help in our efforts to help feed and care for the at‑risk children living at CIC. Now the children have a grill big enough for all!”
Pictured here are Ms. Brunson, along with Okaloosa Gas’ Kenny Kilpatrick and Eric Black, Mr. Hair, and CIC development director Allie Noah.
